Recent San Diego vacation rental reviews

I brought my family plus my brothers family. 4 adults, 2 adult kids and 6 kids we had ample room for everyone, plenty of bathrooms. The house was clean and had everything we needed. The sun deck did not have a table which I thought was weird for a BBQ area to eat outside- other than that we would definitely book here again. Highly recommend. Might make this an annual trip with the fam.

Literal 1 minute walk to the beach. Can easily walk back to the house to use the bathroom or grab a forgotten item. High quality finishes in the home. The roof top deck is great to bbq and enjoy the weather.

I absolutely loved this house. It feels so modern compared to so many houses or hotels in the mission/pacific beach area. I love that this house has great lighting, clean window coverings, a full washer and dryer, a shower outside that has the ability to be hot! I love the outdoor sitting spaces although I do think it could use a jacuzzi. I love the high quality sliding glass doors and the high end appliances. What I did not love was the stupid central air remotes. I could not figure out how to use the damn thing since I would hit power and it would still run but if you change modes, one room was cooling different then when we finally compared the remotes, we got the temperature down, but if you bump the temp up, it’d feel like moist heat. I appreciate that there are two parking spots but the spots are super tight. The garage could barely fit the Tesla. The side carport fit the lifted 4 runner but once a neighbor came in, we had to park super close to the wall so they wouldn’t hit our doors with their doors. Typical San California parking but definitely not for those who suck at parking in tight areas. The low water pressure was noticed but at the end of the day, I’d rather have 4 beautiful marble bathrooms with low water pressure than 1-2 disgusting bathrooms with great water pressure! Haha! The master had a leaky toilet sound right after I flush. There were ants in the kitchen bathroom but nowhere else. The couch is probably the most uncomfortable couch ever. Gives me IKEA vibes. Very firm. We brought down the Murphy bed to have more sitting and laying space but we had to move furniture around. I would have loved an extra roll of paper towels because with 8 people and lots of hand washing, we had to start skimping to not run out, but we ran out. I love the closet conversions to cabinets. The master bed feels like it’s slumping but still comfy. Overall a beautiful house that I would highly recommend. Exactly like the pictures. Very well kept by housekeepers. I will say there were a lot of dirty grout lines that could use a handheld steamer to blast the sand stuck in those corners.

Explore our San Diego, CA vacation rentals

Break out from the humdrum with a trip to sunny California. San Diego vacation rentals offer a convenient home base while you explore nearby city attractions, stunning beaches, and dive into the food scene. Welcome to California, there’s something here for everyone.

Where is San Diego, CA?

Just 13 miles from the seaside beach community of La Jolla, our San Diego beach house vacation rentals offer access to a cosmopolitan, vibrant city environment, but with exciting outdoor attractions like hiking, biking, fishing, and of course surfing, right nearby.

Outdoor Activities in San Diego

There are 27 miles of car-free, winding, paved bike paths that loop around the activity-rich area of Mission Bay (great for families) and the Bayshore Bikeway includes 25 miles of scenic bike lanes along San Diego Bay. Whatever your skill level, you can find an adventure on two wheels —and a few photo ops on the way.

When you leave your vacation rental in the morning, you can explore the canyons, mountains, and deserts on two feet. Hiking trails are plentiful and well-groomed, whether you take off for an easy Sunset Cliffs beach walk or a three-mile vertical climb up Cowles Mountain. If you're looking to catch a wave, San Diego boasts big swells and waves, guaranteed to have you hanging ten before you know it.

Things to Do in San Diego

Mission Bay boasts one of the largest aquatic parks in the world, so bring your water skis, kayaks, and fishing pole. With over 90 museums in San Diego County alone, this is a haven for arts and culture enthusiasts. Spend an afternoon walking around Balboa Park (home to the San Diego Museum of Art, Model Railroad Museum, and more), Old Town San Diego, and if you have kids, be sure to stop by the New Children's Museum downtown or the world-famous San Diego Zoo

With an impossibly tasty food scene, it’s only a matter of where to start in San Diego. Stop by a corner taco stall on your way to the beach, dig into fresh seafood by the water, or head to Hodad’s Downtown for a locally-loved giant burger. Don’t forget to cool down with ice cream while window shopping on the boardwalk.

At 120 miles south of Los Angeles, San Diego offers a gentle Mediterranean climate with plenty of sun and cool ocean breezes. The city boasts 70 miles of gorgeous beachy coastline, making it the perfect location for a memorable California getaway for the whole family, a romantic weekend, or even a surfing trip with friends.
